New Haven – Driver Charged In Pedestrian Incident

A motorist was just arrested in connection with a recent pedestrian incident in New Haven.

On February 13, a pedestrian was at the intersection of Blake Street and Whalley Avenue when she was struck by a vehicle driven by 68-year-old Samir Zienadden. The victim was hospitalized following the crash and has since been discharged. Authorities referenced video footage of the incident and, after investigating the crash thoroughly, filed a charge of second-degree reckless endangerment against Zienadden. He was arrested and released Thursday, with his first court date scheduled for March 5.

The rule of law will always apply, and that should include charges/claims filed by the state and, in specific cases, aggrieved/injured parties. Legal experts can help us understand these avenues and processes, and when certain avenues can be appropriately pursued.
